- Microvolt T-wave alternans in end-stage renal disease patients--associations with uremic cardiomyopathyRajan K Patel
British Heart Foundation Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Centre, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK
Clin J Am Soc Nephrol 6:519-27. 2011..MTWA results of ESRD and hypertensive left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) patients were assessed to determine the prevalence of abnormal results and associations with uremic cardiomyopathy...
- Determinants of left ventricular mass and hypertrophy in hemodialysis patients assessed by cardiac magnetic resonance imagingRajan K Patel
BHF Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Centre, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, G12 8TA, Scotland, United Kingdom
Clin J Am Soc Nephrol 4:1477-1483. 2009..Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is a volume-independent technique to assess cardiac structure. We used CMR to assess the determinants of left ventricular mass (LVM) and LVH in HD patients...
- Association of left atrial volume with mortality among ESRD patients with left ventricular hypertrophy referred for kidney transplantationRajan K Patel
BHF Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Centre, University of Glasgow, UK
Am J Kidney Dis 55:1088-96. 2010..Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging is a volume-independent method of accurately assessing cardiac structure and function in patients with ESRD...
- Altered relative concentrations of high-energy phosphates in patients with uraemic cardiomyopathy measured by magnetic resonance spectroscopyRajan K Patel
Renal Research Group, BHF Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Centre, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK
Nephrol Dial Transplant 27:2446-51. 2012..We also assessed associations of HEP levels with abnormalities of uraemic cardiomyopathy...
- Renal transplantation is not associated with regression of left ventricular hypertrophy: a magnetic resonance studyRajan K Patel
BHF Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Centre, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK
Clin J Am Soc Nephrol 3:1807-11. 2008..Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) provides more detailed, volume-independent, measures of cardiac structure. Changes in LV mass measured by CMR after renal transplantation were studied...
- Vascular function assessed with cardiovascular magnetic resonance predicts survival in patients with advanced chronic kidney diseasePatrick B Mark
BHF Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Centre, Faculty of Medicine, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, Scotland, G12 8TA, UK
J Cardiovasc Magn Reson 10:39. 2008..Increased arterial stiffness is associated with mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) permits assessment of the central arteries to measure aortic function...
- Urinary corticosteroid excretion predicts left ventricular mass and proteinuria in chronic kidney diseaseEmily P McQuarrie
BHF Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Centre, University of Glasgow, 126 University Place, Glasgow G12 8TA, UK
Clin Sci (Lond) 123:285-94. 2012..Twenty-four hour THAldo excretion is an independent determinant of proteinuria in patients with CKD. These findings emphasize the importance of MR activation in the pathogenesis of the adverse clinical phenotype in CKD...
- Angiotensin blockade is associated with early graft dysfunction after live donor renal transplantationKathryn K Stevens
Renal Transplant Unit, Western Infirmary, Glasgow, United Kingdom
Transplantation 89:707-9. 2010..We, therefore, examined the impact of pretransplant treatment with blockers of the renin angiotensin system on early graft function after renal transplantation...
- Fibroblast growth factor 23 predicts left ventricular mass and induces cell adhesion molecule formationKathryn K Stevens
Renal Research Group, ICAMS, University of Glasgow, 126 University Place, Glasgow G12 8TA, UK
Int J Nephrol 2011:297070. 2011..We do not prove causality with elevated FGF-23 and LVH. Further research should ascertain if lowering levels of FGF-23 translates to improved clinical outcomes...
